Default y pipe

went to a local exhaust place to see about replacing my muffler and y pipe and the guy told me he couldn't touch the y due to illinois law. he states he could be fined $10,000 for touching anything from the cats forward. is he full of crap?

The Gen 4 Y-pipe is from the cats BACK not forward.....

He's full of crap, yes.

find another shop as he clearly does not want to undertake the task.

I have read other members on different auto enthusiast sites that IL is very strict when it comes to modifications to any part of the factory exhaust system.

So keep on trying other shops as mentioned and see how it goes.

Like said above, whether or not IL is strict, the y pipe is behind the cats, not in front. It would have no effect on emissions or anything like that.

Go elsewhere.

Anything involving emissions, including the cats, is Federal law, nothing specifically to do with Illinois.

I am pretty sure that guy is full of it. I live near Joliet and I went to three local exhaust shops and they all gave me quotes to just put a mangnaflow Y on. Not sure what the deal is for yours.

Changing the y pipe doesn't effect emissions.
